    Default A Truckload of 5.25" DSDD Floppies



    Approximately 28,000 5.25" floppies, or 9.6GB if formatted as 360K

    They won't get tested before shipping -- inside each case is 50 boxes of 10, sealed and shrinkwrapped. I'd hate to have to do a backup job and need *that* many

    Also, I got approximately 560 KB/sec on the drive home

    A number of cases are going off to the Nox Archaist guys. They've put together a new Apple II game and are doing an actual boxed release with feelies, a manual, and 5.25" disks. I was going to back their Kickstarter but I don't really play that genre of game (or really, any games) so I thought selling them a bunch of really high quality disks for cheap would probably be a bigger help anyway!

    Some are for $day_job stuff. I may take some to VCF Midwest and sell them off cheap. The rest are generally available for purchase.

    Thanks for continuing to develop games for old computers -- and going so far as to do actual box releases!
